I am very lucky to live so near to the Fashion Museum Bath, which holds a world-class collection of contemporary and historic dress. Whilst studying for my Costume degree, I spent many an hour in their wonderful research facility for various projects and was able to view the garments at short notice of which I will always be grateful.
Continuing with their stunning themed exhibitions, ‘Lace in Fashion’ will be showcasing more than 50 pieces and exploring how lace has been used in fashion from the time of Shakespeare to the present day. The exhibition will included selected lace pieces from the museum’s extensive collection dating from the 1500s to the present day, and sit alongside loans from contemporary fashion designers who include Burberry and Karl Lagerfeld.
Lace in Fashion will open on 4th February 2017.
